Why do I have cellulite?
Cellulite is undoubtedly one of the most stubborn cosmetic concerns and, in many cases, seems to appear overnight. The technical cause of cellulite has to do with fibrous septae between the skin and muscle layers, but some patients are simply more likely to develop cellulite than others. Risk factors for cellulite include:
- Poor diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Rapid weight fluctuation
- Being a woman
Cellulite is more common in women than men and typically appears in one or more of the following areas:
Which treatment should I get for cellulite?
Because every person’s body, needs, and goals are unique, Dr. Prokupek will take ample time to discuss your options, evaluate your concerns, and recommend the most appropriate cellulite treatment or procedure for you. For many patients, the cutting-edge Morpheus8 Body system is a fantastic solution for reducing cellulite, remodeling adipose tissue, tightening the skin, and more.
How does Morpheus Body work?
Morpheus8 Body aims to tighten the skin, recontour the body, and remodel tissues through radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. During the procedure, which typically takes about 30 – 60 minutes to complete, the Morpheus8 handpiece is used to deliver powerful RF energy deep beneath the skin’s surface. This energy ignites the body’s natural production of collagen to encourage skin tightening, while the microneedling element of the procedure helps trigger the body’s healing process for brighter, healthier, more even, and more youthful-looking skin overall. In many cases, patients can enjoy a tighter, firmer, smoother contour with a reduction in cellulite after Morpheus8 body contouring. Common concerns that can be improved with Morpheus Body include:
- Mildly sagging skin
- Early skin laxity
- Adipose tissue
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Visible blood vessels
Where can Morpheus8 Body be used?

Will Morpheus8 get rid of my cellulite completely?
Most patients will require an average of 3 – 4 treatments to achieve their goals. However, it is important that patients considering Morpheus8 Body have realistic expectations for their results and understand that no cosmetic treatment or procedure can completely eliminate cellulite. With a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and regular maintenance treatments, many patients can enjoy a long-term reduction in the appearance of their cellulite after Morpheus8.
